IBM has released its FileNet P8 4.0 enterprise content management software, the first new version since the computer giant bought FileNet in a £800m deal in October.

The FileNet software allows businesses to capture, bring together and manage content from across their operations, automating records management and making it easier to meet compliance requirements.

A year ago, IBM announced it would invest an additional £500m in data management, focusing on software and services to help businesses better manage and gain insight from their data. The vendor followed up with the launch of its Information Server software in October, based on technology gained through the £550m purchase of Ascential in 2005.

The new release has a J2EE-based content engine and content federation services for third-party repositories, so users can carry out functions including search, classification, storage, updating and deletion of content held in data stores from a variety of different software vendors.
